EA82T ignition timing
Posted 12 August 2003 - 01:35 AM
Now that I drove it it seems a little sluggish and is also pinging. Leads me to believe that the distributor is NOT timed properly. How should I go about timing it? Never had a distributor out before, so this is kinda new to me.

One small?? item Craig failed to mention,
on the EA82T the green connectors beside the ECU (under the parcel shelf pass side) <span style="text-decoration:underline">must</span> be connected. You have a CAS* dist. and you must tell the ECU you are setting the base timing.
22 to 25 BTDC is correct
The idle switch must also be closed - this is located in the TPS** and is kinda automaticly closed if the throttle cable is adjusted so some small slack exists at idle.
* CAS Crank Angle Sensor
** TPS Throttle Position Sensor
Hope this helps
